http://www.linuxquestions.org – After shrinking my disk with Gparted, I have created a swap partition (sda6) and a root partition (sda7) for Slackware 64 current. I have used the kernel and the initrd.img from the current repositories. Mounted swap and root, selected http sources and selected all the packages, the installer show a progression of series installed, but the target partition is almost empty (only /var and /lost+found are created). Instead of generating an error message the installer doesn't look it's doing much. I have tried both http and ftp mirrors, after 4 hours I have given up. Has anybody had the same p (HowTos)
